Celebrity Big Brother 2017 was off to a roaring start, with an epic batch of celebrity housemates eager to fill the airwaves with drama, betrayal and firm chin-rubbing (thanks Shaun Williamson for that).
But with each of the stars convinced that their personal brand of humour, hugs and outspokenness will win over the British public, which of the housemates can rule the roost and make it through to the CBB final?
Sandi Bogle of Gogglebox was an early contender for eventual winner, having entered the house to cheers and a wave of love for her sassy sayings and no-nonsense self. But fans were surprised when she didn’t even make it to the final despite other housemates receiving plenty of boos and jeers in the crowd.
Fancy a flutter on which of the housemates will be first out? Want to see if you can predict the CBB summer 2017 winner? See below for the latest real-time CBB betting odds from Sky Bet.

Channel 5 has broadcasted CBB every night of the week at around 9pm, except Saturdays. And if you can’t get to a TV screen for the final, it’s also available online on the Channel 5 live stream .
Channel 5 bosses deliberately keep details of the housemates’ paycheques secret, although some of their salaries have leaked out in the past.
The highest-paid CBB star of all time is thought to be Ray J, who was offered an impressive $ 1million (810,000) in January 2017 to spill the beans about his relationship (and that sex tape) with Kim Kardashian.
Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt – aka Speidi – were also thought to have been tempted across the pond by a tidy $ 700,000 payout in 2017.
And the late David Gest reportedly got $ 740,000 to sign up.
On the other end of the scale, series 18 winner Stephen Bear was rumoured to have trousered just £12,000 for his time in the house, despite easily being one of the most controversial housemate of all times.
Who won Celebrity Big Brother 2016?
The winner of CBB in summer 2016 was Stephen Bear, who went on to present Just Tattoo Of Us with his girlfriend Charlotte Crosby – herself the CBB winner from series 12.
Six months before that, Geordie Shore star Scotty T was crowned the CBB winner in February 2016.
And Coleen Nolan took the top spot when she won CBB 2017’s winter version earlier this year.
